Local crisis and prevention fund

Local crisis and prevention fund: emergency payments or household goods

Get help if you can't afford the basics like food, gas, electricity or household goods.

The Fund will be open to applications for school uniform between 11 July 2022 and 9 October 2022. Please do not apply before this date.

We aim to process claims within 10 working days.

How we can help

We can help you in a financial crisis by:

  • giving you an emergency payment for food
  • supplying household goods if you can't afford basic furniture or white goods, like a fridge or a cooker

You won't have to pay anything back.
